The following is a statement from House Minority Whip Mike Caputo (D-Marion) on the resignation of Supreme Court Justice Menis Ketchum.
“The shenanigans in our highest court are inexcusable. The people of West Virginia have lost faith in the integrity of our judicial system, and rightfully so. The abuse of power and the misuse of taxpayer dollars in our state’s highest court is sickening—and Justice Ketchum has played an active role in this corruption. Justice Ketchum has taken advantage of his position in the Supreme Court, and in doing so he has taken advantage of the West Virginia voters who elected him. I urge Justice Loughry to follow in Justice Ketchum’s footsteps and submit his resignation immediately.”
